Mythic Dungeon Gear and Ranks

Every piece of Mythic Dungeon Gear will have a rank/tier based on its Item Level.

Mythic Dungeon Gear starts at Rank 1 (Item Level 376) and can be upgraded to Rank 13 (Item Level 415) in Dragonflight Dragonflight Mythic+ Season 1.

You will also find ranks on Great Vault loot. For example, if you receive a piece of gear from the weekly chest with Item Level 392, it will be Rank 6 out of 13.
